D.C. officials racking up parking fines
District Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee are among city employees whose assigned vehicles have racked up unpaid parking and traffic fines, according to a new D.C. Auditor’s report, the D.C. Wire reports.
In a sampling of five of the city’s 78 agencies, the auditor found 685 unpaid fines totaling $71,690 since 2002.
A vehicle assigned to the mayor currently has $770 in unpaid fines while a vehicle designated for Rhee has $345 in fines.
The report found that poor monitoring of the city’s fleet, the employees authorized to drive vehicles and fuel cards all contributed to the problem.
